Favorite thoughts from sunday Afternoon conference

I was blessed with holding a sweet little angel for most of this session... thus my thoughts are not as comprehensive.  Still I got some good things....

... bare testimony of the book of Mormon more...

... study all the scriptures... they work together... when used together they confound false doctrine...

... where does your tent face?...

... everyone looses their way at sometime.  The Atonement of Christ is our personal GPS that can get us back on track...

... focus my efforts on FAMILY...

... prosperity and education go hand in hand with marriage and family...

... families make us better people...

... strengthen family... prioritize for the most important work I have is at home and that doesn't mean the laundry... organize life to ensure FHE, prayer and scripture study, but don't forget to teach work... do things in order... remove fear with FAITH... be equal partners in marriage... use church resources...

... fast an pray each week for him... now there is something I've missed...  I hope it helps...

... seek and gain a vision of what the Savior sees in others...

... study conference... search and ponder scriptures more...

... Must have the FAITH to DO...

... if we dedicate our attention to families we will do better temporally and spiritually...

... practice principles of righteousness in parenting and leadership...

... compulsion builds resentment...

...remember, mistakes are for learning...

... teach principles... allow them to fall... sigh...

... help children establish a connection with heaven...

... do more to help my kids feel my love and confidence in them...

... write more "real" letters...

... start more natural and normal conversation that lend to baring testimony...

... never delay in following prompting...

... record what I learn from the Spirit... if shows gratitude...

... What does Christ think of me?...

... REMEMBER!...

...Ponder the truths you've heard, help them make you better than you already are...

... Oh I need thee...

Sad.  Sad it is over.  Sad that tomorrow will feel like starvation after a weekend of feasting.  Happy that we can go to the Internet and feast whenever we want.  Happy for the Conference issue of the Ensign coming in May.

What impressed you?

  1. Lords response - slow to hear their crys because of their iniquities

    Church is the mooring in the tempestuous seas.

    Luke 15 - Correct your course - the Prodigal son

    Disciples able to do hard things

    Setting limits with loving patience

    Wise parents prepare their children to live without us. Agency = spiritual responsibility

    Help our children exercise their agency
    Help our children establish their own path to Heaven

    Let them feel our confidence, that they are on the path and they can do it!!!

    Worth of souls (whatever condition) is great

    What thinks Christ of me?

    All will be made right

    For the "Cause of the Master"

  2. Oh Jill.... You crack me up. I've always wanted to be like YOU! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It all just moves too fast to get it all. I'm still working on writing one thought and I miss the next one. I wish we would all share a little more. We wouldn't miss so much if we did. Hugs!

Book of Mormon Study... Title page and testimony of the witnesses

According to the Prophet Joseph Smith, “the title-page of the Book of Mormon is a literal translation, taken from the very last leaf, on the left hand side of the collection or book of plates, which contained the record which has been translated, the language of the whole running the same as all Hebrew writing in general; and that said title page is not by any means a modern composition, either of mine or of any other man who has lived or does live in this generation” (History of the Church, 1:71).


That means it’s scripture too! That is why today I start my Book of Mormon study with the title page.

I am part of the House of Israel. My children and their children are a part of the House of Israel. This Book is written for me and for them.

I love that the Title page declares that this book is a “gift”… now this book I am marking will become a “gift” for my grandson. How cool is that? I feel like Nephi, writing my testimony of Jesus Christ and of the gospel plan as I study God’s word so …

An Open Letter to Those Who Hate The School Dress Code

I have noticed a ton of resistance to dress codes in schools.  I have something to say... get over it.  
A dress code is not about body shaming.  It is not about control.  It's not about taking away individuality. The dress code is not about making social divisions.  It is not about taking away individual rights.
A dress code is about keeping a professional environment where real work happens.  Contrary to popular belief, woman don't get to wear whatever they want when ever they want in "the real world." Every profession has some kind of dress code.  Nurses, doctors, real estate brokers, vets, and even McDonald's workers have a dress code.  Even farmers and day labors wear clothing appropriate to the work they do.  School is a professional environment where the student's "job" is to be the student - to learn - and the teachers' job is to open the possibilities in young minds and to create an environment where people - all people - can learn.  Th…

Once-a-Slightly Over Month Cooking

Today may be the last day of the year, but it was the first day of the month around the Boyack house.  Today was Once-a-Month-Cooking day.  The funny thing is that it usually ends up lasting longer than a month.  Our last big cooking day lasted from September to now.  The thing is, I don't always pull from the freezer.  Weekend we cook from scratch.  However, with my voice lessons in late afternoons and sometimes play practice or performance I am too tired to think about dinner.  Making dinner ahead saved me so much money from September to Christmas that I was able to pay for half of Christmas from the savings from the food budget.  Plus, we had much healthier meals!

After collecting which recipes we wanted to make, and making a shopping list, John headed to the store around noon.  We started the cooking and assembly around 1:00 and ended all the cooking by 7:00.  In that time we made 35 dinners.  We have the fix-in's in the cupboard to make 15 more quick and easy meals.  We …
